"Through 71 intimate stories and portraits, elders in Seattle's Chinese American community share, for the first time, their personal memories, both sweet and bitter. In their own voices, they describe their early life in Chinese villages, their passage to America and Seattle's Chinatown. They share their experiences working in laundries, restaurants and canneries. They tell of the climate of racial discrimination, the era of World War II and the community that emerged after the war." "These stories are supplemented by an original historical essay on Seattle's Chinese American community by Doug Chin. The essay provides a window for understanding the struggles and achievements of Chinese Americans during the period from 1860 to the 1960s, the landmark first 100 years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
